Orienteering 1:01:42 [3] 3.9 km (15:49 / km)

Bear Brook camping weekend brown, 3.5k, actual disance a guess. Forgot to bring the 310 for gpx file. Pretty easy brown except for 6 to 7, of "standard Pawtuckaway difficulty" but w/o a plethora of boulders. Blew it, too - to the tune of maybe 4'. Finally noted a sole, small, uncrossable swamp (duh kind of thing) - then contours fit and went directly to the flag,100m away. The logging, where it exists, is pretty ugly and makes for difficult footing.

Right leg just doesn't work when it comes to a steady jog, the thigh becomes weak. Jogged short bits and walked, esp 7 on the Fundy Tr. to 8 and 8 to 9. My biggest find was an iPhone 7 on the ground in the woods between the last control & finish. The owner was only 10' from me when I asked who might have lost one.

A bit confused, I e-punched at the "wrong" finish, then went to correct one when it was pointed out to me, then eventually noticed a dsq on the finish sheet and finally went back to first finish box to complete the episode, erasing the dsq - all in all, taking maybe 3-4' which I subtracted. Certainly not that 'seconds counted' anyway.

Orienteering 1:09:16 [2] 1.83 mi (37:51 / mi) +137m 30:43 / mi

O walk @ BB on a Fri pm. Sunny, pleasant.
Had a quite-the-coincidence set of encounters with a fellow in a pickup.
He turned R off 28 and immediately pulled over. I passed him. Then in a mile, I stopped at the BB entrance to put up the car top, so he passed. In about a half mile, he pulled over. I thought he was entering a picnic area but then saw he was moseying along a ways back. I turned into BBSP and drove up Podunk Rd, parking along it. He passed me going up. 75' later I returned to the car coming out of the woods & he passes with 90" of my arrival, going down. Made me wonder about coincidence.

Cardio 1:02:32 intensity: (25:00 @1) + (37:32 @2) 3.81 mi (16:25 / mi) +146m 14:40 / mi

Parked at Rob Road parking - planned to get to T jct which was appreciably farther (pleasantly, too) than I thot. Nice shady woods with shafts of sunlight.
Was not really able to run any distance tho due to right leg issue. Got to T jct, was thinking of going left and calling Beth when I got to BBR but then going right was front & center & was able to complete a loop. Had not been in these woods for quite some time. Winter of '02-3, Z&M used to run with me from one side to the other, Beth doing the ferrying.

Cardio 34:16 intensity: (30:16 @3) + (4:00 @4) 2.06 mi (16:38 / mi) +1m 16:37 / mi

BHS, rainy day but not at time of visit. Low 60s, so a nice temperature w/ singlet. 8 200s, a bit at 4 effort. Barely use 1 due to being always, somewhat at least, OOB. Got there only a little bit before school out.

Cardio 44:20 [3] 2.7 mi (16:25 / mi) +1m 16:24 / mi

@BHS Labor Day morning - gentle breeze, cool. Tried a longer venue but just plain get stuck around 300m - in fact, could not complete the first three. Right thigh becomes sl achy, then weakish, then weak so I have to stop. Did get the 4th done though, maybe by starting harder than the other three. Not particularly OOB, not on a b-blkr, so evidently circulatory insufficiency. Maybe there is a surgical sol'n in the future - or accept inevitable limitations.

Another older guy there getting going as I was leaving.
8 PM


Maybe slowly waking up from post-op, not really sure. Anyway, fall is always a wake up call.

This critter obligingly stayed in place while I went in the house for a camera
